Frankly, it’s a bit shame to consult the forum for such problem but I couldn’t find any solution no matter what… Here is my issue; I’m using my 14" laptop with 1080p native resolution, same goes for ETQW with 16:9 aspect ratio on Linux. Recently, I have been experiencing serious frame drops which are probably related with my graphics drivers. Anyway, I decided to downgrade the game’s resolution to 900p or even 720p to gain framerate and stabilize it. However, for an unknown reason, the game centers the downsized screen instead of stretching it to fullscreen. There are literally black bars around the 720p image despite being already fullscreen. I tried to tweak ~/.etqwcl/base/etqwconfig.cfg by by comparing it following source;
The key value should be r_mode as it has been since the original Quake but setting it to -1 makes no difference. Here are related lines from my config;
seta r_customAspectRatioV "9" seta r_customAspectRatioH "16" seta r_aspectRatio "-1" seta r_customHeight "720" seta r_customWidth "1280" seta r_fullscreen "1" seta r_mode "-1" seta r_useSDLModes "1"
And here is the result:
Does anyone have a clue? I suspect r_useSDLModes but setting it to 0 has made no difference…
